Worksheets for area & perimeter

Here is the newest worksheet generator that I have added to HomeschoolMath.net:

Area and perimeter of rectangles/squares 

It is very versatile and makes many different kinds of problems related to the area and perimeter of rectangles and squares.

You can make:
  • problems for the area and perimeter of rectangles and squares, with grid images or normal images
  • word problems, including ones asking for a side length when area or perimeter is given
  • problems with irregular rectangular shapes
  • problems to practice distributive property with two-part rectangular areas (required by Common Core Standards in 3rd grade).
You can make worksheets with just one type of problems from that list, or mix them up however you want. For example:

I especially made this worksheet generator because I feel many children may have some difficulty with the new Common Core Standards requirement for 3rd grade, that is 3.MD.7.c
"Use tiling to show in a concrete case that the area of a rectangle with whole-number side lengths a and b + c is the sum of a × b and a × c. Use area models to represent the distributive property in mathematical reasoning."
You can generate worksheets for this exact standard! They can look like this:

or you can ask children to draw the two-part rectangle.
